Mora Clock 01

Regular price £2,500.00 GBP Sale

Antique Mora Clock from the early 18th century dated 1817


This Mora clock is painted in its original white and green paint colours.


The paint is worn reflecting the age of the clock.
There is a hand carved crest on the base of the clock which was possibly the crest of the original owner in 1817

The face has been detailed with the name of the clocksmith who made the mechanism (Peter Fargershylt) and the town in which he made this clock ('Christinehamn' now spelt Kristinehamn).

On the inside door panel of this clock the clocksmith has added his 2 initials and the 3rd initial is the first letter of the name of the town ('PFC') (the 'F' is old Swedish style). The date has been added below these initials: 1817.
There are additional carved details around the lower base, the door panel and the hood/crown of this clock. The clock is in good condition but shows signs of wear consistent with the age of this clock, for example, dry wood splits.

This Mora clock has its original working mechanism, pendulum, cast iron weights.

The clock has an 8 days movement and will required winding every 7th or 8th day and comes with its original winding key.
